NAME

       XtOwnSelection, XtOwnSelectionIncremental, XtDisownSelection - set selection owner

SYNTAX

       Boolean XtOwnSelection(Widget w, Atom selection, Time time, XtConvertSelectionProc
              convert_proc, XtLoseSelectionProc lose_selection, XtSelectionDoneProc done_proc);

       Boolean XtOwnSelectionIncremental(Widget w, Atom selection, Time time,
              XtConvertSelectionIncrProc convert_callback, XtLoseSelectionIncrProc lose_callback,
              XtSelectionDoneIncrProc done_callback, XtCancelConvertSelectionProc
              cancel_callback, XtPointer client_data);

       void XtDisownSelection(Widget w, Atom selection, Time time);

ARGUMENTS

       convert_proc
                 Specifies the procedure that is to be called whenever someone requests the
                 current value of the selection.

       done_proc Specifies the procedure that is called after the requestor has received the
                 selection or NULL if the owner is not interested in being called back.

       lose_selection
                 Specifies the procedure that is to be called whenever the widget has lost
                 selection ownership or NULL if the owner is not interested in being called back.

       selection Specifies an atom that describes the type of the selection (for example,
                 XA_PRIMARY, XA_SECONDARY, or XA_CLIPBOARD).

       time      Specifies the timestamp that indicates when the selection ownership should
                 commence or is to be relinquished.

       w         Specifies the widget that wishes to become the owner or to relinquish ownership.

DESCRIPTION

       The XtOwnSelection function informs the Intrinsics selection mechanism that a widget
       believes it owns a selection.  It returns True if the widget has successfully become the
       owner and False otherwise.  The widget may fail to become the owner if some other widget
       has asserted ownership at a time later than this widget.  Note that widgets can lose
       selection ownership either because someone else asserted later ownership of the selection
       or because the widget voluntarily gave up ownership of the selection.  Also note that the
       lose_selection procedure is not called if the widget fails to obtain selection ownership
       in the first place.

       The XtOwnSelectionIncremental procedure informs the Intrinsics incremental selection
       mechanism that the specified widget wishes to own the selection. It returns True if the
       specified widget successfully becomes the selection owner or False otherwise. For more
       information about selection, target, and time, see Section 2.6 of the Inter-Client
       Communication Conventions Manual.

       A widget that becomes the selection owner using XtOwnSelectionIncremental may use
       XtDisownSelection to relinquish selection ownership.

       The XtDisownSelection function informs the Intrinsics selection mechanism that the
       specified widget is to lose ownership of the selection.  If the widget does not currently
       own the selection either because it lost the selection or because it never had the
       selection to begin with, XtDisownSelection does nothing.

       After a widget has called XtDisownSelection, its convert procedure is not called even if a
       request arrives later with a timestamp during the period that this widget owned the
       selection.  However, its done procedure will be called if a conversion that started before
       the call to XtDisownSelection finishes after the call to XtDisownSelection.
